As stated, aimpoint. If being cheap, which I wouldn't if I was an officer, the Bushnell TRS or Sparc...

I am a big fan of Aimpoint for CQB. IMO Acog is heavy & over rated unless you intend on shooting longer distances.. If you plan on carrying a weapon for long periods of time, lighter is better & you can't beat backup iron sights only with a blue force gear sling.

The trijicon srs is twice as much and can have halo issues in bright light without a killflash installed. I would go with aimpoint. If he wants to spend the $800, get the better aimpoint.

pro works but is bulky. I would spend the extra minimal coin and get one of the smaller ones

Have you looked in the vortex? Little larger than the aimpoint, more affordable

Not worried about budget he's got $1k in his budget which should cover just about anything.
